Sample text

There is no crime so enormous that a better society could not have ameliorated it. They hunt the thief with a stolen rooster and name cities after plunderers of a nation.

Cleverness is competitive, wisdom never. Cleverness comes with the body, wisdom from the Lord. COLOR Man was made of clay. Clay is black or red, but never white.
